Kitchen Medicine



Marjoram (Origanum majorana)


This tea should be enjoyed in small quantities as it stimulates the circulation and can raise the blood pressure.
Simmered in wine it is a diuretic and can be used for oedema and urinary complaints.
As a bath additive it makes a good restorative nerve tonic.
The volatile aromatic oils and bitter principles have a positive effect on the digestive system, liver and gall-bladder.
Sweetened with honey it makes a good expectorant tea.
The essential oil of marjoram, diluted in a base oil such as almond oil, can be used as a massage oil for painful joints and muscles, rheumatism and arthritis.
Its warming action is also beneficial for chilblains and insufficient circulation to the extremities.
